About this item

Alabama Shakes – comprising vocalist/guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, drummer Steve Johnson and bassist Zac Cockrell – began playing together when they were in high school. Ben Tanner assists on keyboards. 'Boys & Girls' was recorded at The Bomb Shelter in Nashville, TN. Produced and mixed by the band members, the album is a vibrant fusion of swampy dirty South rock, blues and soul delivered with punk rock fervour.


Darryl says: The debut album and a real biggie!! Don't be put off the massive hype surrounding this band, this is top notch soul rock bringing to mind the likes of Afghan Whigs, early Kings of Leon and Muscle Shoals period Rolling Stones.
